A word from Tio's Cantina at Hawk's Cay
Authentic Mexican dishes made with fresh ingredients and the flavors of the Yucatan make up the menu at Tio's Cantina. Margarita anyone? Tio offers up a full menu of tequila-based cocktails. Dine inside or out at this waterfront location. The food is authentic, the tequila is strong, and everyone is familia.

    Bland food. Place was full of noisy children. Good for families. Not for couples looking for a night out.

    This restaurant provided decent tex-mex food. The salsa and guacamole were good (not great). Bar service was slow. Waitress was friendly. On Duck Key, a person is limited to a small number of dinner choices without driving some distance to another Key to eat. This restaurant is decent for a warm meal, but certainly not with a special trip.

    We had a very nice evening -- the food and margaritas were great, and the service was friendly and efficient. When we made the reservation we mentioned that we were celebrating a birthday, and the staff came out singing with a piece of wonderful tres leches cake! The food was very fresh and delicious, but the salsa was a little on the vinegary side. Overall, a fun experience. Being locals, we're looking forward to going back again soon.

    We went here for my husband's birthday. Set up reservation for 9 and they took us to a table for 5. Not sure what that was about, other than they hadn't been open but 2 weeks I believe and the young man who was hostess was as nervous as anyone I've seen. He was stumbling over himself he was so nervous. The food was just ok, and the prices were decent compared to the resort prices, which are extremely high. The keys needed a Mexican food place, so hopefully they get their stuff together and get organized.

    Very average, waiter was sweeping the floor when we arrived at 7pm, then he took our order, then carried on sweeping. Seemed disinterested. Food average

    The staff was very accommodating of special dietary needs. I have Celiac, and the manager took extra care to ensure my food was safe and delicious. Every one else's food was great, too!

    Food was good - not great. Kids menu was overpriced, which doesn't make sense relative to the adult menu. Our service was slow - waited very long time for our bill.
